The new PC2-6400 DDR2-800 2x1GB Dual Channel modules from GEIL don't offer anything out of the ordinary by way of design, nor is the look of the Aluminum Heat Spreader anything new, although the shiny orange colour makes a difference. In fact, the colour makes the modules quite noticeable inside the PC case.
In our benchmark tests, with SiSoft Sandra 2005, the GEIL memory modules achieved a score of 7549MB/s and 7573MB/s in the Memory Bandwidth benchmark for Floating Point and Integer maths respectively, while in the Combined Index, the reported 13561MB/s was quite good. In PCMark05, 5647 PCMarks is an excellent score. In games, the increased memory speed in combination with the overclocked CPU increased the frame rate, in as much as this is possible, since don't forget, the Graphics Card plays the leading role here.
The overall performance of the PC2-6400 DDR2-800 2x1GB Dual Channel modules from GEIL running at 900MHz with CL4-4-4-12, is close enough to that of the great Corsair CM2X512-8000UL at 1000MHz CL5-4-4-9. We can therefore classify it as a great performance.
The price, according to GEIL, for the PC2-6400 DDR2-800 2x1GB Dual Channel modules is US$180. A great price, in comparison to the competition, excellent performance and a lifetime warranty, make this product a great purchase.
